Winemaking Notes


Full flavoured yet medium bodied, black and blue berries, with an earthy, mineral quality which gives it vibrancy and makes it very moorish.

Lagrein is a north-eastern Italian grape variety native to Trentino-Alto Adige. Think mountains and valleys, so it likes elevation and warmth right? Enter a single vineyard at Mt Crawford, with 450m elevation in the southern Barossa.

Lagrein has this wickedly dense colour that stains everything it touches -  hands, feet, teeth, clothes, concrete… so I am mesmerized even before I get to smell or taste.

I also think Lagrein is a bit of an Italian anomaly, where the wine is more fruitful than savoury, yet has a brooding rustic charm.

The grapes were de-stemmed to an open fermenter for gentle handling on skins until pressing six weeks later. Matured in old French oak.
